How about some tea? Personalized one for a teacher gift!

Finished one tea cozy. I still have to quilt the other cozie, but it is almost done. They turned out wonderful!!! This is the Simplicity pattern 4341. Very, very pretty and easy to make. I can see many, many potential alterations to make this unique for the teapot lover! In the picture to the left, you can see the other unquilted cozy on the table next to the Sunny Days tea cozy. I thought my girls would love the whimzy of this fabric. Below to the right is a 3/4 top view of the cozie. I love, love this pattern!!

Wish you could come for tea!!

Going to bed now...happy days!

Much love and lots of tea drinking times,

Update on the tea cozy. I personalized this cozy to give as a teacher present. My older daughter's teacher loves tea, but doesn't have a pot, so we are giving her a teapot and cozy. She loves ladybugs and collects them, so we added two little ladybugs to the outside. One represents the teacher and the one following represents my daughter. I wrote an inscription on the inside of the tea cozy with their names and a heart surrounding BFF (best friends forever) with the date on it also. Just thought I'd show you the bottom of the cozy for construction purposes. Their is an 8" piece of elastic which makes the cozy tuck nicely around the base of the teapot and makes it very stable!

Love and hugs. Not doing much more sewing today. My left hand is really throbbing today.
